About the film:
People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award winner, 2023 Toronto Film Festival
Two self-obsessed businessmen (writers Aaron Jackson & Josh Sharp) discover they’re long-lost identical twins and come together to plot the reunion of their eccentric divorced parents, in this riotously funny and depraved musical from comedy icon Larry Charles.
Dicks: The Musical (2023) boasts a soundtrack of 25 original songs including “Gay Old Life,” performed by stage and screen legend Nathan Lane; “Out Alpha the Alpha,” featuring three-time Grammy award-winning superstar Megan Thee Stallion; and the unforgettable, all-star finale number, “All Love is Love.” With its impressively crafted score and star-studded original songs, the soundtrack is the connector between the film’s absurdist humor and poignant messaging.
